Edition/Format: Chapter Chapter : English
Summary:
When examining the outer parts of the solar system water becomes more and more abundant. The water reservoir on the Erath and other terrestrial planets might have been supplied by the impact of these objects in the heavy bombardment phase of the early solar system evolution. Water on small solar system bodies such as asteroids, comets, objects in the Kuiper belt and Oort cloud seems to be quite common. Its presence  Read more...

Abstract:

When examining the outer parts of the solar system water becomes more and more abundant. The water reservoir on the Erath and other terrestrial planets might have been supplied by the impact of these objects in the heavy bombardment phase of the early solar system evolution. Water on small solar system bodies such as asteroids, comets, objects in the Kuiper belt and Oort cloud seems to be quite common. Its presence and the detection is reviewed.
